Yes, Even Your Teens Need A Bedtime Routine

How important is sleep for a teen? The answer is, incredibly important! But making sure they get enough is a whole new ballgame. 

On today's show, Ginni and Jo discuss a question from a parent who isn't sure if their teen is getting enough sleep, and delve into the impact of not enough shut eye, and how you can encourage your kids to get more.

Plus, we hear from a listener who wants to know if there's a right time to discuss different sexualities with your child, and how.
